Visit Mount Stuart

Discover award winning Mount Stuart, one of Britain's most spectacular and exciting Victorian Gothic mansions located on the beautiful island of Bute. Explore this imaginative and stunning house and its priceless art, literature and cultural collections. The interiors reflect the 3rd Marquis of Bute's passion for history, art, astrology and mythology and his vivid imagination with inspiring architecture and innovations ahead of their time. It was once the most technologically advanced house of its age. Enjoy the 300-acre estate of gardens and woodlands, which are home to native and exotic species of plants - including important botanical specimens that are endangered in their own habitats. You can also sample the delights of the award winning visitor centre and café, which makes full use of local produce - including fruit and vegetables from Mount Stuart Kitchen Garden.

For lovers of
History and heritage, culture, art, nature, gardens.
